[Orgmode] save-excursion fails to restore point

Here is a minimal test case:

  (outline-up-heading 1 'invisible-ok)
  (org-sort-entries-or-items nil ?a))

What happens is that point stays on the parent headline.

What I expect is for save-excursion to save point no
differently from just saving point and doing goto-char.


When I change a todo state and then sort entries manually
using my sort function, everything works.  But when I do so
from org-after-todo-state-change-hook, point gets placed on
the parent headline.  Point gets changed right after the
save-excursion in org-todo (3rd paren from last).


RMS in the reply to
seems to say that it is inevitable.

Is there a way for org to work around this?

If not, it is a warning to the wise.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis denialism is causing death and severe suffering,
worse than MS.  Conflicts of interest are destroying research.  /You/ can
get the disease at any time permanently.  Do science and justice matter to
you?  http://www.meactionuk.org.uk/What_Is_ME_What_Is_CFS.htm
